Abstract

Analogues of leaf alcohol and related compounds, bearing a cyclopropane ring in place of the double bond, were synthesized and their odour characteristics were examined. cis-(Ethylcyclopropyl)ethanol was prepared using the Simmons-Smith reaction with leaf alcohol. Ethoxyethyl ether and some alkyl and aryl esters were also prepared. Cyclopropanation of the double bond modified their original odour characteristic without losing the key green note.
